On April 20, 2003, exotic dancer Tamara Greene was killed in a drive-by shooting. Known by her stripper alias, Strawberry, Greene was allegedly a dancer at a now-famed, but never confirmed bachelor party at the Manoogian Mansion during Kwame Kilpatrick’s tenure as Detroit's mayor. The mayor’s wife supposedly came home unexpectedly and attacked Greene. Investigators called Greene’s killing a drug dispute, but conspiracy theorists say her murder was connected to the supposed events at the mansion. Detroit Free Press reporter Carol Teegardin wrote a book called Strawberry: How an Exotic Dancer Toppled Detroit’s Hip-Hop Mayor and this play is a reincarnation of that tome. Play begins at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday; 5101 Evergreen, Dearborn; 248-660-7629;; $25.
